I tl Many farmers have discovered an extra source of cash income from the. grass crops. They grow the crops under controlled conditions and harvest the seed for sale to others. Many farmers are surprised at the amount of seed a grass crop produces. Clovers have been standbys of hay and pasture production for years. A few years ago another clover took its place in their ranks. It was Ladino - the "big white" clover. This is the kind of pasture you should have. The best pastures are mixtures of grass and legumes. Straight grass crops, such as timothy, don't have the nutritive power that livestock need. Our modern legumes are tremendous producers. . Vernal alfalfa, for example, outyielded Ranger. Buffalo, Atlantic, Grimm and Kansas Common varieties by an average of 12 per cent. Vernal is more winter hardy. If you are planning to develop more grassland on your farm, perhaps you should make a soil test. A soil test can indicate which grass crops will be best adapted to your soil and how much fertilizer should be applied to establish a stand and keep it producing. Local agricultural technicians can help you get a uniform farm soil test. Use d-CON d/rected itncl GET RID OF RATS AND MICE FOREVER! You don't km to bo on oiport-~ Myono CM MM doM, ofcrioss d-CON!
